According to Euka:
I make no excuses for my prior actions and behavior that led to my incarceration. I fully accept responsibility for the negative effect that my actions had on my community and society at large.

I have come to understand how my negative actions effected those I care about. For example, my children grew up without the presence of their father, and my mother and step-father started getting helplessly ill over the years. Now, my small children are adults with children.

While in prison, I have had the unique opportunity to take a closer look at myself as I observed the behavior and opinions of others around me. In 2002, I started working in the education department which led to my current employment in FCI Greenville. My motivation to help others stemmed from my first cellmate who was functionally illiterate. From him, I learned there were more guys like him, who wanted to educate themselves, but were ashamed to ask for help. Literacy became my passion and I became a volunteer tutor which developed my GED Tutoring. Being a GED tutor led me to co-create a reentry program, Lifestyle Intervention Course, and it led me to help facilitate chess tournaments where prisoners were matched up against college students and professors.

Why Commutation?
I believe my clemency petition should be granted because I was unable to benefit from the Fair Sentencing Act in 2010 due to the fact of being sentenced in 1999. My two life sentences would have been lowered to the concurrent maximum of 20 years. And although the reality was that I could possibly die in prison, I still took the positive steps to rehabilitate myself, help others, stay out of trouble, and did not involve myself with gangs or any other type of organizations with negative attributes.

Re-Entry Plans
If I am released back into society, although I have employment offers, I still plan to pursue a college degree, help care take my mother, and reunite with my children. Besides that, if the opportunity presents itself, I could help influence the younger generations to not join a gang, to not rob and/or kill his neighbor for money or material gain, and to respect law-enforcement.
